The app update adds a tiny little creature to the area above the Dynamic Island on the new one iPhone models. It can be customized as a cat, dog, hedgehog, fox or axolotl, and the little creature simply walks around the dynamic island while you browse Reddit.

The new “Dynamic Island Zoo” option for Apollo is opt-in, and it’s available with the latest version of the app. Selig has also added the little creatures as lock screen widgets, so those who don’t have an ‌iPhone‌ with a dynamic island can also add an animal to their device.

Earlier this week, Apollo was updated with iOS 16 support, so there are also a number other Reddit-related widgets which are available to those running the ‌iOS 16‌ operating system.

Apollo can be downloaded from App Store free. [Direct Link]
